SZA is at the Gothic Theatre, 3263 S. Broadway., tonight and you’ll go see her if you know what’s good for you soul (mainly talking to you, ladies).

Tickets are not sold out, and they’re $30. Doors are at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m. with Ravyn Lenae and Smino.


Or if you’re feeling more old school, you of course can’t go wrong with Mary J. Blige, who’s at the Bellco Theatre, 700 14th St.

This somehow isn’t sold out, either. Tickets are $36.75-89. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show is at 8 p.m.


The Denver Museum of Nature & Science, 2001 Colorado Blvd., is hosting a screening of “Saving Sea Turtles.” You can guess what it’s about.

Tyler Lyson, curator of vertebrate paleontology and turtle evolution expert, will be there to talk turtles, and filmmakers Jenny Ting and Michele Gomes will share behind-the-scenes stories and more sea turtle conservation efforts.

It’s happening from 7:30 to 8 p.m. and tickets are $15.


And it’s Battle Royale night at Ratio Beerworks, 2920 Larimer St.

Twelve comedians will face off in a bracket-style joke competition in which the audience decides who advances at the end of each round. Tonight’s comedians are John Bueno, Dan Raney, Nolawee Firesauce Mengist, Laura Lyons, Kacy Dahl, Michael Seyedian, Elena Ingraham, Mollie Pea, Noah Reynolds, Zach Welch, Jose Macall and John Davis.

It’s free and it starts at 8 p.m.
